What is Chemical Peel? 


We know that under your skin, you can find a layer that has more vitality and radiance. As we want you to reveal the beauty hidden, we want to suggest chemical peel to improve the way your face looks.  According to the Mayo Clinic, during a chemical peel, the expert applies a chemical solution. This process aims to remove the upper layers of your skin. Then, the skin that grows is smoother. If you have a light or moderate peel, you may need to undergo the procedure more than once to get the desired results. 


Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin color changes, and scars, usually on the face. It can be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures. A deep chemical peel provides more impactful results, but recovery is slower. 


Risks and Benefits of a chemical peel 

Some benefits of cleaning your skin profoundly with the chemical peel are that you can remove pollution and makeup accumulated on your face. At the same time, dead skin cells will be retired so that you will have a fresh and renewed appearance.   


Take into account that if you clean your face like this, it will be easier for your skin to absorb treatments such as serums or moisturizers. 


Chemical peels rarely have serious complications, but some risks do exist. These risks include scarring, infection, inflammation, changes in skin tone, and outbreaks of cold sores. You can reduce the risks associated with a facial peel by following the expert's instructions and sharing your medical history with them. 


A chemical facial peel can offer several benefits to your skin. The procedure can restore youthful-looking skin and reduce wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, sun damage, and blemishes. According to the website DocShop, you can check and learn more information on the risks and benefits of a chemical peel to help you fully understand the procedure. 


Do you need one? 

While it may sound scary, a chemical peel is the safest way to exfoliate your skin gently. The skin naturally sheds the accumulated layers of dead cells, but this process slows down dramatically as we age. Fortunately, this type of peel can help by dissolving the "glue" that binds dead skin cells and encourages healthy skin growth. 


Remember that we use chemical peels to improve the appearance of specific skin problems. These problems include acne scars, wrinkles, or skin changes caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. A chemical solution is placed on the skin to dissolve the upper cell layers. 


Be careful because it is possible to over-exfoliate the skin and damage it. Exfoliating too much removes the skin's protective barrier, making it vulnerable to sun damage, dryness, and even infection. If you are using a potent chemical scrub, it is better to wait 24 hours before exfoliating with a physical one again. Remember, if you notice anything atypical or burning on your skin, visit a dermatologist. Also, do not try it if you are under any specific treatment. 


Thinking about beauty treatments can make you have expectations because you will get results of transformation in your body or face. But, at the same time, you can feel nervous because if you do not reach the results you want, you can turn disappointed or even depressed. For these reasons, we always recommend visiting a certified place where you can feel comfortable and sure about the attention you will receive.
